It's a mighty aggressive schedule for a handset that hasn't even been announced yet
, but the latest scuttlebutt regarding the HTC Incredible
suggests that the phone will make its debut on Verizon's airwaves about two weeks from now. It was already known that the Incredible was destined for a rendezvous with Big Red, but this latest word solidifies and specifies that future nicely -- and
it's claimed to come directly from internal sources at Verizon. There's also further mention
of 512MB of DRAM allied to a downclocked Snapdragon CPU (capable of 1GHz, running at 768MHz), an 8 megapixel camera, a 1,300 mAh battery, and body dimensions almost indistinguishable from those belonging to the Nexus One. Good thing too, since Verizon is still keeping us waiting
on a mysterious Spring release of Google's own-brand phone. We get the feeling Android 2.1
and the new Sense UI
will fill that gap nicely, however, and if you really must
have that 1GHz speed, there are ways
to achieve such things too.
